i'll take number 2.
The computer doesn't reboot. Windows says RR has done something wrong and is being shut down. The BMV2 skin does not crash. If I start IG immediately after starting RR then it does not crash.
So something is being called up when the main window is open that is causing a crash...
it sure is quiet in here....
i thought i heard a puddy cat
Maybe it's the calm before the storm...
Bring on the storm! :lol:
So, okay here's a couple of questions (probably good for the FAQ too).
1. In my last carpc, I had gotten iguidance 2 to embed perfectly in lsx void. It would close when I pushed the close button (not just move to the background) and I didn't have the window outline.
However, I can't remember how I did that. I've been trying different methods over the last few weeks to repeat my success but so far I haven't really been able to. iG opens and navigates fine, but I can't seem to get rid of the window border, and it won't actually close when I push the close button
2. Also, the playlist saving feature has never really worked for me. I can create playlists, but every time I try and save it in one of the 5 slots, it saves the name but none of the songs in the list.
Any help on those two would be greatly appreciated.
1. when you click close you want IG to close completely, exit?
Do you have ignative=true or fals in RR.ini?
From what it sounds like, it seems IG isnt embeded at all when u run it.
A few things to check.
In RRConfig under GPS
GPS Mode is set to external
GPS Path is C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidanceUMPC.exe|nowarning
GPS Window Name is iGuidance
Inside the Skin
Click and hold the NAVI button, choose IG3 or IG2 depending on what ver u have installed.
also make sure you arent using any IG helper/launcher apps (like skinbedder etc) they are not needed anymore.
2. Is your playlist path inside of your music path? (should be if not)
Is the playlist file (m3U) completely empty? Have u checked its contents in notepad. How are u going about trying to reload the saved playlist slots? There are about 3 different ways.
Some extra info on how u have RR setup, install path, rr.ini settings etc would help to trouble shoot.
I don't necessarily want it to close so much as when I leve the nav screen and come back to it later, I want the same screen to pop up. Right now, what happens is a new ig.exe loads every time I hit the IG button, which sucks cause the new instance of iG doesn't talk to the gps receiver, and it's wasting resources.
I am using iGmon or whatever the all in one iG app is. I guess I should uninstall that then, cause it seems that you're saying I don't have to do anything to embed it, it should just work. Am I reading that right?
I have iG version 2.1.3 (or something like that), so mine doesn't say UMPC, it just says iguidance.exe|nowarning, which works fine in the sense that I don't get the warning on startup
EDIT: I added the line ignative=TRUE to my rr.ini, and I changed the gpsname to iGuidance (I don't know if that matters) and now everything works perfect. iG opens without the window border (embedded) and fully closes when I push the close button. Amazing, thanks LS. The GPS was driving me crazy the other day when I drove up to LA.
It's weird how entering those few words of text in the .ini can make such a huge difference
First one is I'll create a playlist on the fly from my library. Maybe an album, maybe a compilation, maybe my whole my music folder. Then, I try to save that playlist by pushing and holding the 1-5 playlist button. I then get the dialogue asking me which slot I want to save it in. No matter which one I pick, it doesn't save. It will save the name of the playlist, but then it will be empty.
The other way I've tried is to go into the playlist "manager" (I'm not sure of the name, maybe it's more of a playlist chooser) from the audio screen. I create a playlist on the fly and try to save it there. It seems to save, but when I go back in and try to load it, it's empty.
My setup is pretty standard. I'm running the latest version of both rr and void, everything was setup and saved to the default location(s). "My Music" is the music folder, I'm using winamp version 5.11, with everything default (except I'm using classic skin instead of modern). If it matters, I use EZsync to keep my music updated, and it's installed to the default C:Ezsync.
Sorry, but how do I know where my playlist path is located. I didn't even know there was a path for it. I guess I assumed the skin was just saving a playlist in winamp. There is a folder in "My Music" called "my playlists" which I don't think I created, but it seems to be empty.
On my lunch, I can go out to my car and check any setting in the rr.ini, but for the most part I can't think of anything I changed in there from the default.
